The Macon County Public Library, a member of the Fontana Regional Library, and the Friends of the Library are pleased to be installing their third Little Free Library at the Holly Springs Community Building. The Holly Springs Community Building is located at 2720 Cat Creek Road in Franklin. The first Little Free Library was installed at the Franklin Town Hall in October 2014, and has been a great place for people of all ages to find good things to read. The second Little Free Library was installed at Iotla Methodist Church in May 2015. Its convenient location near the Iotla Valley Elementary School makes this a great site for families. If you’re not familiar with Little Free Libraries, check out their website at littlefreelibrary.org.
Our Little Library, built by dedicated volunteers in memory of Pearl Steinman, was inspired by the architecture of our larger library. The Little Library will be stocked with books collected by members of the Holly Springs Community, books donated to the Friends of the Library, and children’s books donated to Read2Me. Everyone is encouraged to use the Little Library to find something to read, where they can “take a book and return a book.”
We’d love to have you join us to celebrate the installation of the Little Library at the Holly Spring Community Building on Tuesday, April 12th at 10:00am (weather permitting). This will be an informal, brief event. If you can’t make it, no problem – the Little Library will be there for you on your next visit to the Holly Springs community!
